Probably one of the best sushi places outside of Japan . Original dishes with original service. Saw boxes of Huon salmon go into the kitchen, none of this Tassal stuff. Green tea was the real thing, not a teabag in sight.

Quite a few salmon plates but the choice was otherwise limited. The tempura prawns were cold and fatty like they had been deep fried too long. The service was fast and friendly. They made a mistake with a drink order and fixed it quickly without any fuss. The restaurant itself has boxes and stuff everywhere and needs a good clean.

Searching for Sushi I ended up this sushi bar. Very nice place and the staff is greeting everyone entering the bar with a special sentence. Sushi was very good and very reasonable priced (especially for Sydney CBD). Only missed the option to order a nice Japanse beer

Last time I reviewed this Sushi Bar was about 4 years ago and I gave it the 5 stars. However I feel an updated review is overdue since quite a few things have changed (not for the better). In my opinion this is still the best quality sushi in Sydney CBD however the edge over the other sushi bars they... More

This is really an excellent place and I am torn between giving four or five stars. It's near Hyde Park. It is really a sushi train place of the kind that you find all around the city but you can order from a menu and there are some tables on the side where you can sit away from the belt.... More

The food was excellent, the sushi juicy and fresh. The variety was big, one can order extras from a menu except from the the plates that pass in front of you. But the service was incompetent, uninterested completely. We had to ask repeatedly to receive a small plate for the soy sauce or to order a drink. It's a pity.

This may not be a fair review as we just returned from Japan a couple of weeks ago. We unconsciously compared this with the restaurants there. There is a big gap in both quality and service. Oh and the prices, Sydney almost double that of Japan. There is no bookings, customers are required to write their name, number of people... More

Definitely order a Teriyaki chicken hand roll a Tempura king prawn hand roll. You'll need to get there early if you want to eat around 5 - 6 pm as there's almost always a line to get in.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
